  The Rule Book. The basis for business among the members of The Carpenters' Company was a small book, copies of which were discovered in the early s by Charles Peterson, an architect and a historian, while he was crawling through the attic of Carpenter’s Hall. In early America, this rule book was reportedly a well-guarded secret. Carpenter's rules have not survived in large numbers and those that have are almost all 2' long. Fig 5, however, shows an unusual one only 18" in length. The tables for small dimensions are those for a 2' rule, with the bizarre result that the board line cannot be used between 6" and 9"nor the timber line between 8" and 11".
